Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Since he won a couple of Emmys for his role as Angel Martin in The Rockford Files, Stuart Margolin's career has been rather patchy, and this Canadian thriller did not bring about a significant revival in his fortunes. Megan Follows - best known for her role as TV's Anne of Green Gables - co-stars in this hackneyed hokum about a troubled teen who begins to recall the events surrounding her father's unexplained death as her trauma-induced amnesia slowly lifts. Making her big screen debut, writer/director Patricia Gruben has produced a plot that is overladen with unimaginative nightmare sequences and seems decidedly short on surprises.
